4:09pm
which parts of their agenda is popular and which part of the other's is unpopular and dramatize with floor votes that don't result in any bills. >> reporter: so democrats put a new vote on the paul ryan budget to drive home to voters he would change medicare. republicans drive home to voters that president obama lost half a billion on solyndra. the impasse over hiking taxes on the rich, that if not settled, could raise everyone's rates january 1st, and trigger huge defense and social service cuts. the fiscal cliff is getting put off until after election day. the farm bill will help with the drought, is partially postponed because republicans are pushing for a cut in food stamps. >> the american people are asking to balance this budget. >> reporter: each side blames the other. >> for people outside and out of work, they're astonished by the

4:18pm
country music hot spot. but it truly is. and i know country radio does really well there, and the fans come out to the shows. and it's exciting. >> "the voice" will have a three-night premiere. we've been waiting for this all summer. it starts at 8:00 right here on nbc 4. a preview and a look at some of the new twists in store for the contestants this season. >> reporter: once again, buttons will be pushed. >> going with your gut a lot of times is the right thing to do. >> reporter: and chairs will twirl. >> sit on the edge of your seat and just anticipate being moved by someone. >> reporter: nbc springtime hits move into the fall for season three. >> i'm dying to have you on my -- >> reporter: renewing the search for the next great voice sight unseen. >> just kind of gutteral reaction to what you're listening to. that's always going to be what guides me and inspires me.
